“Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans over the last 20 years. Immigrants are more fertile. And they love families and they have more intact families and they bring a younger population.”

Explain how Larry Flynt is against womens rights; how is he a misogynist?
Tell us about the 4 U.S. citizens who were killed by drones and why you defend them? Here's one of them: Anwar Al-Awlaki, go read about him and tell us why he should not have been targeted.
You rightwingers can't make up your minds if you are on the side of the terrorists or your own country. You're a traitor, just like all the teapartyers. Your motivation and opinions are solely based upon racism and hatred of the Democratic President.
You're likely even defending that thief and traitor Snowden as well, stupid idiot. Perhaps you should go live in China or Russia as well.
You're dumber than a rock.
Temper, temper.

You screw up and use the misogynist Flynt as a political authority.
No one made you do that.

Damn the Constitution and let Holder play judge and jury is your logic?

Why are you mumbling about Snowden for? Just thought you would throw him for good measure or are you one of the loonies like Dave who wants him to be DRONED?

The rest was throwing the kitchen sink as you are without a logical argument.

Your defense is as inarticulate and irrational as your original posts.
Yeah

What would you like to see as a solution? Israel is not the only country that it will affect. I wonder what the other Arab nations are doing about this?
Do you think the U.S. should started bombing them to smithereens?
They can't let the conflict extend beyond the borders.

But, I would think a government friendlier to the US and by extension, to israel, can bring more stability to the region.

israel's problem is they can't fight a limited war. If something starts with one, it will quickly find itself fighting all.

Not really.

No comparison in some aspects because-

Not having to flip pages, being able to hold a rigid object in one hand that allows for the function of being able to adjust font size with the other hand are real positives too!

speaking of losing....
Rick Santorum said Thursday that Republicans squandered an opportunity to really exploit an out-of-context quote from President Barack Obama that took on a life of its own in last year's campaign.
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney tried desperately last year to make hay out of a portion of an Obama stump speech in which he said, "if you've got a business, you didn't build that." The full context of the speech clearly shows that Obama wasn't really suggesting what Romney's campaign claimed, but Republicans seized the line and even made it the theme of the opening night of the party's national convention.
But that's where Romney and the GOP blew it, Santorum said. Instead of trotting out business owners at the convention, the former Pennsylvania senator argued, the party should have featured rank-and-file workers.
“One after another, they talked about the business they had built. But not a single—not a single —factory worker went out there,” Santorum said at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, as quoted by Politico.“Not a single janitor, waitress or person who worked in that company! We didn’t care about them. You know what? They built that company too! And we should have had them on that stage.”
A poll conducted in the late stages of the 2012 campaign showed that the GOP's emphasis on "you didn't build that" was a dud.

just because carol paraphrases BillO doesn't mean it isn't mindless copy and paste.
I went to the partisan, charity Media Matters and found what I suspected. Media Matters is in full wet-your-pants hysteria about FNS and in full denial that is was UK press that brought to light the last four scandals.

Media Matters cannot face the reality of their impotence and how far they have fallen. They use to be source the admin use to refer Reporters too until it was discovered that Media Matters was nothing more than Obama smear spokes people.

Meanwhile, idiot David Brook still labors under the delusion of grandeur and surrounds himself with body guards.

As in NO comparison, none what so ever- in some aspects.

I cannot imagine even trying to justify any denigration of either, finding that to be something only ignorance would do.

MSNBC has a corporate mentality that fails to understand how to make programming interesting.

They could put out the same propaganda message to a much larger audience if they hired some on-air talent that was skilled and personable.

Going from Mr. Ed to Chris Hayes was going from dull to duller.
